September 10, 2007 -- Chicago, IL - As the demand for environmental integrity grows, GPA takes pride in announcing their answer to an eco-friendly substrate: Ultra Green. Unlike traditional paper, Ultra Green is manufactured without the use of trees, water or toxic agents including beaching chemicals.
The result is an environmentally responsible substrate that offers unrivaled visual quality, press performance and environmental impact. Different from pulp papers, it has no grain resulting in a smooth surface that promotes high color saturation and resolution. This unique substrate combines the printability and converting characteristics of paper with the durability of plastic in one amazing substrate.
Ultra Green is naturally resistant to scuffing, water, grease and oily substances, making it ideal for outdoor applications. Due to its distinctive characteristics, it is also resistant to ultra violet rays, therefore it will not yellow or become brittle in the sun.
GPA's Ultra Green is an earth friendly, energy efficient, acid-free and 100% tree-free paper that is superior in performance, appearance, and aesthetics over traditional papers.
